5.06 Weekend: Celebrating The University of Scranton's Day of Giving

Donor Count: 2,279! We Did It!

Our third annual Day of Giving was a success!

Thanks to you, we surpassed 1,999 donors and unlocked a $30,000 scholarship gift from Craig Steel '99 and his family! What a weekend! 

Make My Gift

Craig Steel '99 and his family have offered to contribute $30,000 to student scholarships if we reach 1,999 donors by the end of the Weekend. 

Help us unlock this generous gift to benefit current Scranton students. You can support any fund in any amount. As long as you give, you will get us one donor closer to reaching the goal.
